Snorkeling at Agincourt Reef
Snorkeling is one of the best ways to view the incredible underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef, and friendly staff are on hand to show you how. On your way out to Agincourt Reef you can view an instructional video on how to snorkel to teach you the right techniques.
Upon reaching the outer reef, you can obtain your snorkeling equipment from the storage containers on the platform. Easy access to the water is available from submerged platforms. Our friendly snorkeling safety officers can assist you with your snorkeling gear, and give you a few tips so that you can fully enjoy your experience.
Semi Submersible coral viewing
If you would like to stay dry, then you can explore the stunning reef from the comfort of a sub. The semi submersibles cruise slowly through the colorful coral gardens giving passengers, seated just one meter underwater, the opportunity to experience a snorkelers-eye view of the marine life without getting wet.
The semi-sub experience takes approximately 25 minutes and includes an informed commentary on the marine life observed during the journey and an overview of the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. Semi-subs depart every fifteen minutes from the rear of the platform. Announcements are made to prompt you before departure.
Watch the fish feeding from the unique viewing platform and underwater observatory. From here, you can also see the "first time" divers taking part in introductory dives. Butterfly fish, parrot fish, angel fish and elegant nudibranchs dance before your eyes and coral gardens beckon you to explore. Watch, entranced, as a clownfish snuggles into the embrace of a sea anemone.
Optional Activities (book and pay in advance):
Introductory Snorkel Tour
Led by a marine biologist, this tour provides an introduction to the Great Barrier Reef. Designed for the novice or beginner snorkeler, this tour is a great way to learn about the marine environment.
If you've never dived before, and would like to experience the magic of SCUBA, try an introductory dive with a highly qualified dive instructor. The only requirements are that you are at least 12 years of age, pass the on-board medical questionnaire and participate in a 30-minute dive brief. No experience necessary.
Ocean Walker - Helmet Diving
A unique and fun experience, see the reef up close during a helmet "dive". Breathing fresh air delivered from the surface into your helmet, you'll walk underwater on a reef platform - you can even wear your glasses if you wish! Ocean Walker is suitable for non-swimmers and persons aged over 12 years. After a short briefing and subject to medical conditions, you will be walking amongst the reef fish and corals.
All diving activities (Ocean Walker and Introductory Dive) for children 14 years and under must be booked directly on the day of travel. Prices listed are cruise only.
